Installing and running Skype Desktop Version 8.54

Bill White
 

Hi. I have been away from the Skype platform for a number of years. I am going to be installing Skype Desktop Version 8.54 on my PC. Are there any settings and options of which I should take special note when installing and running Skype Desktop Version 8.54?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hey Bill, welcome back to Skype!

I'd like to just add a thing which I am not sure is clearly explained on Doug's scripts for Skype electron user's guide, that is the link that Stephen already gave you. In Skype version 8.51 and later, it is now possible to activate the split view mode in order to have separate chat windows, just like it was in older versions of Skype. If you want to do so, just press tab till you find "More options" menu button, press space, choose "Enable split view mode" with arrows, and press enter here. Beware though that in split view mode some indications are not spoken by JAWS, and possibly NVDA as well but I'm not sure of the latter, such as "message sent".

Bye!

Hi, Stephen. I downloaded Skype, but I think it is the wrong version, not Skype 8 for desktop (electron). This is because I am running JAWS 2020, and Doug Lee says that when I press INSERT plus Q, I should get a script revision number if Skype is in focus and the Skype scripts are installed correctly. Where can I download the correct (electron) version of Skype?

Thank you.

If Sarah's suggestion doesn't help, type Ctrl+JAWSKey+v in the Skype window and tell me what app name and version number come back.

It says,

Skype Version 8.54

It says nothing about Electron, and gives no revision number when I press
INSERT plus Q.

Hi again, Doug. I uninstalled the scripts, reinstalled, restarted JAWS, and
now it reports the revision number.

Thank you.

There is an issue in JAWS that sometimes requires a JAWS restart after a script installation before the scripts will load. I forgot about this when I wrote you earlier. The technical issue is that changes to ConfigNames.ini may
not be detected until JAWS restarts, and the script installer adds an entry to that file that is responsible for loading the scripts when you switch focus into Skype.

Sorry I forgot to mention that one sooner, but glad things are working now.
